D-GPU is very misleading to people who use the GPU for its

The term 'compute' is well established with the community of
people using the gpu for, well, compute purpose. You need to
ask your self if you want to attract people who understand that
term and are willing to use or try it with D, or if you want to
inform a broader spectrum of people that 'D' can now do some
(whatever) stuff on the 'GPU'.
So +1 for DCompute, but if you insist you should definitely
narrow it down to D-GPGPU.
D-GPGPU is explicit.
